When asked where she thinks Charlene would be now by presenter Alex Jones, the Spinning Around hitmaker said: ‘I’d like to think she’s got her own garage and has a team of mechanics working for her.’

The songstress played a leading role in the TV series from 1986 until 1988, before leading a successful singing career.

Elsewhere in the interview, the blonde shared her delight at being on track to become the first female solo artist to have a number one album over five successive decades – if Disco maintains its top position on the British charts by Friday.

An excited Kylie said: ‘I’m really glad I didn’t know that while I making the album. There’s excitement and nerves every time I release an album… but that would be incredible. Let’s see how we go.’

Australian beauty Kylie recently recalled the time she nearly recorded a song with Prince – who is widely regarded as one of the greatest musicians of his generation – something she calls ‘an almost dream come true!’ 

The pint-size singer explained how she wrote some lyrics at the Purple Rain hitmaker’s request, which he then turned into a song titled Baby Doll.    

Speaking to Zane Lowe on Apple Music, the artist said: ‘Well, I had an almost dream come true, which was with Prince. I met him. As a 14 year old, a hormonally charged music maniac, Prince is just… it.

‘Then I went to see his show, God, early 90s at Earl’s Court – RIP Earl’s Court – and got to meet him afterwards. 

‘I don’t know where I plucked up the courage from, but I said, “Ah, I’m making an album.” I don’t know what I said. I have no idea. This is before phones and stuff.

‘I’m more gutsy than I kind of make out sometimes even to myself. Yeah. We just kind of hung out. I don’t even know what that means, but we hung out and he kind of put me on the spot a bit.

‘He was like, “So where are you lyrics?” I’m like, “I don’t…” “Where do you want your mic set up?” It was too weird and I must’ve seen him a couple… I wish I had, without phones, the memories, there’s just bits.’

Kylie went on to share how he then sent a cassette of a track which he created using her words, but her record label ‘weren’t into’ the idea of Prince possibly ‘doing it all’.
